Organiser Nathan Dunbar, 16, said, “I am very pleased with how the scarecrow festival ended up this year and despite worry at the beginning local residents all came together and put on a true spectacle of scarecrows. I am also glad there were so many people who wanted to come together as a community whilst benefiting local charities.
